Rosella Gardecki

Archivist for the NLSY97 and NLSY79

Center for Human Resource Research, Ohio State University

Years on the NLS team: 1996-present

Role: I lead the team that creates variables on the NLSY97 and the NLSY79 for researchers to use in their work. I also work in collaboration with others on the design team to review the content of the questionnaire.

Why am I proud to be part of the NLS team

I started with CHRR just as the NLSY97 was first going into the field, and have worked to create variables on that cohort since the first round. It has been interesting to watch respondents grow up and change over time.
